    oh dear..people need to realize he’s a serious contender in the presidential race. For everyone who says he’s a joke and he won’t possibly be president..yall need to realize there are people who secretly support him. Otherwise this show would have had it’s lowest ratings.

    I agree. I think people are just automatically writing him off without realizing he has a larger following then they think. I am surprised he is so in the lead still but 2016 will be interesting to say the least.

    The ratings might’ve been good but he was a waste and only on screen for a total of 12 minutes.
    What a joke he is. I’ll be shocked if he gets the nomination.
